Written by two leading practitioners in the field, this book is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the legal obligations of local authorities and social housing providers in relation to the provision of permanent and temporary housing accommodation, and the rights of those seeking such accommodation.

Housing Allocation and Homelessness: Law and Practice provides a uniquely balanced coverage of both allocation of social housing and homelessness, providing practical guidance on the statutory framework and how the legislation works in practice.

Now recognised as a leading work on the subject, this edition has been extensively revised to take account of the significant changes in both homelessness and allocations brought about by the implementation of the Localism Act 2011, including:

  • the new power to discharge housing duties by offering private rented accommodation
  • the new two year rule for re-applying for homelessness assistance
  • the new power to exclude classes of people from allocation schemes
  • the new rules affecting tenant transfers in social housing

Supporting materials, including the legislation (in consolidated form) and the English Codes of Guidance are provided as appendices for easy reference. These, plus additional materials such as the Welsh Code of Guidance, are also included on the accompanying CD-ROM.
